Angels and Demons

Paint your world challenge blog has started it's 3'd challenge:
Angels and Demons
Since I am lucky enough to be in the DT here is my card:
Honestly, It really makes me smile:)
I didn't colored pumpkins on purpose, I thought it makes my scardy kitty to stand out, and a splash of color from the paper (DCWV)
I just love the "expression" on Tilda's face and Cats eyes!
And I also made this angel from "Sweet Pea" collection yesterday.
I think it turned out kind of somber, But, I still like it.

Here I added as a decoration  resistant canvas, which I left just "as is" for a contrast.
On a personal note:
In a few days, I am leaving for California, My younger sister is about to have her 4th baby, and she's going to need all the help she could have, especcially because she's going to have  a C-Section.
So, have fun, don't loose me)

The best ghost in the world

Or tiny funny tutorial:-)
How to have a fun memory of the past Halloween?  How to entertain a kid, who is already full of candies? As easy as pie! Let’s make a ghost.

Most likely you know how to do it. But if you don’t - join me!
We will need:
-        piece of black\dark fabric
-        glue which you can easily remove
-        white acrylic  paint
-        disposable plate (optional)
-        glitter powder
-        varnish (optional)
-        eyes

But most importantly, we need the sweetest,  most wonderful and most beautiful feet in the world:-)

Now we have everything.  Let’s start.
1.    1. Pour the glue into plate and mix it with white paint

2.     Put the lovely foot in the mix. Foot and toes should be well painted

3.     And set foot on the dark fabric. Hold for a couple of seconds

4.   Remove the foot, get a ghost:-))) To ghost flickered like a real one just put the glitter on it. And set aside to dry.

5.    It’s time to wash the foot:-) Use wipes
6.     Now shake off unnecessary glitter and attach a ghost eyes. It looks alive!!!

7.     Leave for another hour, so it's all dried out. If you want you can cover it with varnish and glitter will not fall off.

And that’s it! You have your own homemade ghost. Frame it and enjoy. Kids loooooove the proccess! Try and you will not be sorry :-)

Little Dragon

This was love at first glance....
As soon as I saw this little adorable cutie pie (*C.C. Designs DRAGON Rubber Stamp Baby Tricks or Treats )-I had to have him! He reminds me of my son. :)
I painted background as usual-with distress ink pads, this time I have used:
Black Soot
Old Paper
Brushed Corduroy
Stamped some trees, pumpkins
Die cut the fence, and a corner piece
Leafes were punched out and  brunches too.
I colored my little monster with Copics.
And added a brad-which I just bought on sale at Wallmart.
And I could't resist to add some flower soft in "Autumn" color.

Winter Wonderland handmade card

I have started getting ready for the BIG holidays.
This is one of the first ones this year. I really had fun painting  coloring it)
Here I have used black cardstock, glittery black cardstock, White Neenah paper, stamped Heartfelt image, and colored with distress ink pads (Tumbled glass, Chipped Sapphire) for white accents I have used quite a lot of Opaque White-it does makes all the difference!
On the top I cut out a piece of acetate and stamped white swirls using opague StazOn ink, and attached with glue dots.
Bit of glitter .... and I was done!

I don't know about you... But, for me Sympathy cards are THE hardest ones to do....
What do you say, to a person who lost a loved one? And how do you comfort someone, especially if life was taken tragically???
I really don't know....
This card is for a young widow of my husbands co-worker. Tomorrow we will be going for a fundraiser for the young woman and her 2 children.
I only hope, she will find peace in time, and strenght to raise her young children.
here is what I came up with:

Why birds, you ask?
I don't know... maybe because I associate families with birds-they meet, they build a nest, raise family....
And now that nest is empty....
Prima paper
Tim Holtz stamp
"nest"- Crafty Secrets stamp
and these ranger ink pads were used to color background with the birds:
-wild honey-
-dusty concord-
-milled lavander-
-tumbled glass-
-broken china-
